Re: New T Gauge products from Eishindo

By pure guess (based on the scribbled note about it)

The Steam Locomotive is a JNR C62. An 4-6-4 wheel arrangement.

Re: Anybody in????

I know I have poor excuses for my lack of attendance. Family members and friends passing to the afterlife. Retail work is not as enjoyable thanks to new boss. And been focus on my other model train scales, had to get new parts for my Live Steamer the other month. The thrill of T-gauge has died on me...

Re: dcc (again) tiny decoder.

Maybe one day Someone will develop a Decoder chip so tiny, it can fit on a paperthin circuit board like this one. http://www.bestpcbs.com/products/extra-thin-pcb.htm
And it can simple sit flat on the top of the motorised chassis where the electrical straps are.

Re: Lack of motivation

I know exactly how you feel, maybe not the exact same way, but still. For me, I want to expand my little world of T-gauge. But unsure where to go, I would love to build a new larger layout, but I don't have anywhere space for it. Would like to model new stuff for 3D, but I'm not sure what to do next...

Re: Magnetic couplers

I think this is a fantastic idea for an alternative coupler system.
Out of curiousity, do you need to make sure the carriages are the right way round for the magenetc polarity?

Re: Block control test

Will deffinatly have a think about it for now, soldering is not one of my strenghts, and I only have the one PWM controller to run the trains. (But 3 old controllers suprisingly, might have to upgrade one somehow.) Knowing my luck, I'll need to order a new one as a spare. I would need to get the 2 c...

Re: Wire glue on track joints

Update: So I manage to try the Silver "CircuitWriter Conductive Pen" on a section of the layout and so far so good, you do need to make sure to put a good amount on in the area as it seeps into the fishplate. Still need the stuff to set for 24 hours, but I couldn't help by try running a train in the...

Re: Block control test

Well I have written to Eishindo about the problem and made the suggestion. (Also asked them about a few other things, but I'm not sure if I can say them as of yet) And at the moment they are having engineer, or so the email tells me, looking at the situation. Although the said it will take a while t...

Re: Wire glue on track joints

I went to the localish electrical store and got a small pot of carbon wire glue. Didn't know until after I bought it, wasn't written anywhere on the packaging, and the staff had no clue what was in it. Oh well, I can use it on the power track connections as a test. I also a Pen that contain some sil...

Wire glue on track joints

I think I'm having electrical connectivity issues with my layout. Even though I have like 5 power track joints through out it. All my fishplates are connected properly. (but some have tarnished over the years) While I know soldering track together is the thing to do. Due to the size of T-gauge, I'm ...

That's really sad, the world of T-gauge has lost a good friend to all. :(
Hope his work will still go on, as I was saving up for some of his exclusives stock.

Re: Fitting wheels

I only fit one magnetic wheel to the leading axle that is been pushed, the middle and rear I use non-magnetic.
But that's because Thomas will only face one way. :-)

Re: Block control test

Don't mean to bring up an old thread, but since the subject is Block control. Anyway, I decided to upgrade my layout to include BC, mainly because people at shows like seeing 2 trains running at once. And saves me from having to toggle switches manually all the time to keep them well spaced apart. I...

Re: Fitting wheels

To be honest, I never run a train with more than 10 wagons as I'm using R132.5 curves and they tend to derail easily. All my rolling stock have the old wheels. Never really tried the new ones fully due to lack of funds to buy a decent number for testing. (Was hoping to earn a bit with the release of...
